I can’t say enough about Anthony and his team! He was so helpful to me from the first conversation. After an informative first phone call, Anthony and I met in person at Graniterock to discuss style and materials. He was very responsive, communicative and consistently attuned to my vision for the project. He’s humble and soft spoken, his work speaks for itself! Anthony is an artist with the stone, and his work created custom centerpieces inside & out. We are beyond thrilled!

I can honestly say that Anthony is one of the BEST contractors I’ve ever worked with. Honest, organized, dependable and top quality work. He’s got a vast knowledge base of masonry and the products needed to make your project achieve your vision. He dressed a massive fireplace with a wall (for my TV) with a rustic stone. Lots of corners and long flat runs and I wanted a white over-grout which he executed to perfection. He then laid firebricks inside in a herringbone pattern and prepped the cavity to accept the high heat from the long 60″ gas fire pan I bought for the project. Lastly, he built up the base with a Venetian plaster to give it the final concrete look that I wanted I did not think I would be able to find someone with the right blend of engineering and creative ability to achieve my original vision, but after working with Anthony, I can tell you that this is the right man for the job if you have a need for a true stone craftsmen. His costs are very fair and he’s very friendly to work with to boot, so do not hesitate to contact him, it will be the best decision you make for you project.

I was looking for someone to repair the grout on our flagstone patio. Anthony called us quickly to set up a time for him to see the job. He came over and looked at the job and let us know what he thought would be the best way to repair it. We got his bid with in a couple of days. We were very impressed by his knowledge and his price. He did a great job taking out the old grout and putting the new grout to match the rest of the patio. I would definitely recommend him. It’s nice to see someone who takes pride in their job! Thank you Anthony

“Mr Anthony Richards and his crew did a superb job building stone landings at our back door and stairway, building new retaining walls next to our driveway, repointing the old retaining walls, and rebuilding and cementing in our front steps. He utilized recycled stone from a dismantled retaining wall and shaped each stone by hand to fit their new function. All the work was done with precision and combined enduring function what the beauty of stone work. True masons are difficult to find and Anthony is a fantastic one. We highly recommend him to any homeowner!”

“Anthony is an amazing craftsmen! He installed two, four foot high terraced walls that are 75 feet long. They are absolutely beautiful. Anthony is a true professional and knows his craft well. He is very flexible and extremely easy to work with. Anthony and his crew truly care about the job the do. We were so pleased at the end we have him extra money because we felt he underbid the job. We can’t recommend AR Stonemason enough.”

“I’m one who highly values quality craftsmanship. So, when we were looking for someone to help us restore our 50 year old chimney system, we wanted someone who would do a high quality job. AR Stonemason proved to be just the right fit for us. I was very impressed with the high quality of work and commitment they showed in completing a restoration we are very happy with. We are very fortunate to have them in the South Sound. If you have a need for any stonemason work, I would highly recommend them.” James Kozack Olympia, Wa
